Local eligible small businesses and charities have until Thursday to apply for a new discretionary grant scheme that was launched last week by Richmond Council.

“This scheme is designed to help mainly smaller businesses and organisations who missed out on government grants first time round” explained Councillor Robin Brown, Lead Member for Finance and Resources. In particular:

• small charities that receive charitable rate relief;
• small charities that pay rent but don’t get a separate rates bill of their own;
• small businesses who pay rent but don’t get a separate rates bill of their own (for example, workspace tenants);
• dentists, physios, vets, osteopaths and other ‘medical businesses’ who were excluded from the original scheme; and
• river-based businesses with mooring fee costs etc.

The Council estimates that there are 12,500 businesses in the borough that currently employ fewer than 10 employees and, while some of these will have accessed the earlier Government funding, many will not have been able to.

“However, the funding we have been allocated will not stretch far enough to cover all the needs of eligible businesses,” warned Councillor Brown. “We are inviting applications from many of our smaller businesses who missed out on support first time round. Realistically with the limited sum available to us, grants will be lower than we would like and not every business can be included.

“We don’t know how big the grants are going to be yet. But for those who miss the deadline, the grant will be zero!”
